The Ocean in Salt is much bigger than all the islands put together, and one might see why there are so much to discover beneath the surface. It contains secrets, food, stat-providable items and consumables, and even some extremely rare fish.

Fishing is a fun and relaxing activity in Salt. Here is an article explaining the philosophy behind it. Fishing can be quest-related or for pure satisfaction, as there are more than 20 different types of fish to catch, and other fishable items in the game.

Fishing can be done anywhere at any time in the game, as long as the bait is in the water of course. Different fishes can be caught near land, near certain types of islands and in the deep water of the ocean. Some fish requires certain times of the day, special equipment worn by the fisher, different types of bait and other fish won't be tempted to take the bait unless the bait moves. Like a "Lure"

Another thing worth mentioning is that fishes are all different from each other. Some are pure food, some can be food and stat-provideable, others can be meant for crafting and some are Quest-items only.

Tips and Tricks Edit

Importance of fishing Edit

Fishing is the easiest way to collect food in Salt. No need to chase down that surprisingly fast and agile Deer. No need to knock on trees to see if fruits are home. Just throw out that bobber and relax while food comes to you!

Fishing and sailing

Fishing on the go Edit

A major benefit of fishing is that you can do it while sailing to other islands. All Boats in the game can be steered while fishing besides the Sailing Raft (The fishing pole will be unequipped if the player starts to move the rudder). Players can walk, jump, run, check their inventory and even do crafting while fishing. But fish won't catch its own, so pay attention when the fishing line tightens up!

Fishing in the deepest parts of the ocean? Edit

Some quests require you to catch a fish in the deepest parts of the ocean. Just sail away from islands until you hear music, which indicates that you are now floating in the deepest parts. Higher waves also indicated this.
